COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Previously brewed at De Smedt/Affligem. Scintillating, fresh and delicately flavoured, Grisette Fruits des Bois is a light, refreshing beer that is brewed with the best malt and wheat. This blend creates a riot of sweet yet slightly bitter tastes redolent of wild berries and other exquisite fruits of the forest.

Draught @ Fox and Hounds, Herning. Unclear / hazy medium orange color with a large, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, wheat, moderate to heavy abrikot or some exsotic fruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet with a average to long duration. Body is light to medium, texture is watery, carbonation is soft. Very refreshing. (040907)

yespr (32344) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 17, 2008
25 cL bottle. Pours clear and red with a pink slowly collapsing head. Cherrish and berry fruity aroma. Flavour is subdued sweet berries. Decent acidic fruity touch. Light tartness. Shows a bit more sugarish sweetness along the way. Reminds of the kind of fruity juice my mother could boil of the berries in the garden when I was a kid - just a bit more sweet (without getting cloying).

Ungstrup (29851) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 6, 2004
The aroma of this beer is of freshcut pibe tobacco combined with cherries. The color is a dark hazy red and with a dense white head. The flavor is like fruit syrup of cherries, strawberries, and raspberries combined with pibe tobacco and wood. Unfortunately the body is thin. It is quite weird with the pibe tobacco.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 24, 2006
(Bottle 25 cl) Hazy, pale reddish with a small, pinkish head. Rather fresh nose full of lovely berry aroma. Light body with a fine balance between the sweetness from the forest berries and the slight tartness from the wheat base beer. Actually a very pleasant fruit beer with no apparent flaws or tangs - just pure fruit. 240106

Bottled (from lahoublonniere.be). Ruby red colour with big long lasting pink head. Aroma is raspberries, blueberries, some mild sourish notes. Flavour is red currant, raspberry, black currant, blackberry and some sour wooden notes as well. Rather sweet, which makes it best while cold.

Hazy dark red beer, pale pink head! Lagerish malt and fruit sweets for a nose. Light semi soft palate, semi dry too. Watery syrupy sweet red berry fruits with a touch of honey. I like sweet fruit beers but this is all over the place and artificial tasting.
